Working with mieke

our founder

Mieke Kramer, LPC, CEDS, CEDS-Supervisor, CPCS

Clinical Director & Psychotherapist

I have a private practice in downtown Savannah, Georgia. I am a licensed professional counselor in the State of Georgia, earning my Bachelor of Science in Biology at Emory University, Atlanta, GA and my Master of Arts in professional counseling at Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA.

My career path began in health care as I worked as an Exercise Physiologist and Nutritional coach at the Candler/St. Joseph Hospital Wellness Clinic. Working with clients from specialized populations to athletes, it was here that I recognized how the physical and emotional identities exist in tandem to each other. I find that I am constantly learning from the best experts in the field of change and transformation, my clients. And thus a journey from wellness counseling to professional counseling began.

I’ve worked in both residential, inpatient, and partial hospitalization levels of care. I’ve learned from and worked with some of the country’s top experts in the field of eating disorders including Dine Monte Nido and the Riley Wellness Group.

Over the years, I’ve facilitated a number of different groups including women’s trauma informed care groups, addiction groups, meal support groups, body esteem for teens groups and family/parent skills groups.

I am a Certified Eating Disorders Specialist (CEDS) designated and approved by the IAEDP organization. As one of the only therapists based in Savannah, Georgia with this advanced training, I am happy to offer this unique specialty to the Low Country. I am also an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) trained therapist with Full EMDRIA certification. I am a practicing yogi with a Registered Yoga Alliance 200hr teacher certification. I am a practicing mindfulness eating coach with an Intuitive eating counselor certification, certified by Evelyn Tribole, RD. I am trained in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), certified by Lane Pederson, MD. Combining my own recovery from an eating disorder, I practice an insightful and compassionate approach as I work alongside individuals, families, and teens in the recovery process.

My appreciation for the empowerment of clients is an integral part of my practice. My own dedication to mind and body wellness has taught me that connection and interpersonal relationships help individuals thrive not just survive their life’s challenges and losses.

*Currently, Mieke is enrolled at Liberty University completing her Doctorate in Community Care and Traumatology (Ed.D). In addition, Mieke is also under supervision for the Certified Eating Disorder Specialist program provided through the National IAEDP organization.
